What's been hot this week? Find out here in this list of trending topics for May 12-18th.

My Little Pony was a hot topic this week when Habro released the teaser for their new cartoon, showing humanized (and somewhat sexualized) versions of their pony girls.

The counter didn't make it more than a few days when James Robinson walked off of Earth 2 only days after they canceled Demon Knights and Dial H.

"Robinson announced that he was quitting DC as of September's issue."

"DC has now canceled almost 8% of it's New 52 line this month alone, and their solicits haven't even been released yet."





Disney made news this week, but not the good kind, as a redesign of Brave star Merida came out, thinning her down for her debut as a Disney Princess.  RU wonders if Disney and Abercrombie & Fitch have teamed up for a new campaign:

And, I'll let you in on a new feature we are working on, still in beta.  It's a new tagging system where we will be able to highlight all news on certain subjects, like:

Man of Steel Movie News

Star Trek News

Video Game News

We hope to have it up and running soon, but we have thousands of back articles to tag and a few other things to tinker with until it's perfect.  You can already see some of it at work at "You May Also Like" feature at the bottom of many articles now, but soon you will be able to click on a specific subject and find all the articles we've posted about it.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
